About this product
This tender steak is lean, but flavorful. Cut from the same piece as our kabobs, this is a great option for customers who prefer a lean, tender steak but aren't looking for something as fancy as filet mignon. Serve this in thin slices to a crowd and it's sure to please. Cut 2" thick.
Other names for this cut: Shoulder London Broil
Basic Cooking Technique:
Prepare like a London Broil. This cut is flavorful enough to stand up to a marinade, and can be cooked quickly over a high heat. Tent with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Beer, Honey, and Lime Shoulder Steak
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

Tender & Economical
Great as a steak or sliced thin in stir fries! Good flavor and tender.
2" Shoulder Steak
This was delicious and tender. I salted them in advance, then cooked following the directions on this site with ground pepper. Served as a London Broil with chimichurri. Delicious! Guests could not stop eating it, and still had leftovers. I cooked 3 steaks; 2 would have been abundant for 4-6 people. Go ahead and order it!
I cut this into large chunks, cooked in a stoneware crock, covered, at 350, for 2-2 1/2 hours until the beef was really tender.... with sauteéd onions, carrots, potatoes, red wine, salt, pepper & umami seasoning...a fabulous beef stew!
Not sure what happened with this new order
Must have been a tough cow. Most of the meat from our most recent order from Filet to rib eye and shoulder steak went from outstanding/stellar to mediocre and questioning on re-ordering. Hope it was just a fluke, we still have about 6 fillet's to try and a few more rib eyes, hope it was just a bad few cows :(
Mini roast beef
We treat the 2" shoulder steaks as weeknight or shabbat-lunch roast beef for just the family. Easy, fast, delicious.
This is absolutely one of our favorite steaks. Great flavor and makes the meal!
Small, fast roast
Although this is sold as a steak, I buy the 2 inch thickness and either grill over indirect heat or roast in the oven as a small, quick roast beef. Great with a rub - either chili powder or the Trader Joe's coffee rub. Cooks in about a half hour. If kids are home and 1 isn't enough meat, I make 2. Perfect every time!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.15 lb|
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~4 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.5 lb||over ~10 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
